SOURCE: smells like it is burning up when I use it!

You should unplug the machine, then remove the plate that covers the beater bar. Remove all debris from the beater bar, (strings, hair, etc.) and insure the belt is in proper position. If you have run it very long out of proper position, it may require replacement. Next before you put it back together remove any debis that may have collected in the intake behind the bar. You can also lubricate the bar with machine oil or WD-40.

SOURCE: Smells like it is hot or something is burning after changing bulb

Your tv is actually an Air eater. The tv itself needs a complete river of air (it looks as an exageretion) not really. I create this picture in your mind to help you to imagine all care you tv needs.

  1. Turn off the set. allow 20 minutes to cool down the set
  2. move the tv to the front and get access to the back of the tv then with a vacuum cleaner gets all dust out around the set
  3. make sure the air filter (refer to the manual) is clean.
  4. try to make sure the places were the air flows into the tv are clean and free of obstructions (back cover).
  5. finally all you can do outside the tv is done. Then when the tv is back its position make sure it "breathes" confortable. You tv has 3 fans inside (there is not a casualty)
The fresh air that goes into the system gets finally out really hot and smelly but as soon as the air flows thats normal for this tv. this is noticiable specially in hot seasons.

Stopped in Belt had been slipping smelled hot but motor was barely warm. Was 30 minutes into workout and machine stopped. Electric panel works but motor won't run.tilt works

time to lube the DECK belt, use WD-40 or grease. do it by each weeks. Try to loose the deck belt. in the way that you lift the belt by 2" with your finger. Otherwise, you must replace the belt+deck. See if the belt drive is to tight. And take time for maintenance the motor, replace the carbon brush+and lube the bearing.

Motor gets Hot

I'm not familiar with the treadmill specifically, but here is some general information that might be helpful. When a motor is under heavier load, it draws more current and therefore gets hotter. If for example, you were able to stop the motor shaft from rotating with an extreme load, it would draw what is called STALL CURRENT which is very high. So the problem seems to be that the load is out of specification. I'm assuming it would probably get hot if it was running with nobody on it as well. That would mean that the drive mechanism driven by the motor is not moving freely. If you can somehow decouple the motor from the treadmill drive system so that it has no load, and then move the mechanism by hand to see if it feels like there is a lot of resistance in the belts, pulleys or whatever drives the treadmill, then you need to lubricate to make it move smoothly. Or if you cannot decouple the motor, just look for all the bearings and pulleys and lubricate those but be careful not to get oil on drive belts or surfaces that require friction such as the surface of the belts or treadmill band. Don't ignore that the motor could get hot enough to start a fire so it is important to resolve this. It is possible that there are shorted windings and the motor is no longer good. If you can decouple the motor and run it no load, and it still gets hot, that would be an indication of such a shorted winding problem. Hope this is a little helpful. G

Reebok T3.2 treadmill stop after couple of minutes

7 amps wth no load is kind of high for this.. be looking at the surface that the belt is on.. and the rollers for excess drag..this should completely freewheel when no one is on it..

I have Merit 710T that has recently begun to smell. I have lubricated the belt and had some problems readjusting the tightness and alignment but now that its aligned the treadmill gives me about 30 minutes...

see the video attached, lube TOO the rollers bearing front +back.
see the video how to adjust the deck belt.God bless you
However if finally the problem persist, test the input voltage motor see my personal TIPS, if there are Voltage at the terminals, the motor is faulty. Measure the output Voltage from the control board
for to input to the Motor, if there are NOT voltage from output the control BOARD is faulty, replace.

After driving for around 30 minutes, the brake

That sounds like the "Porportioning valve" is defective.
You may want to go to your local library and check out a Chilton's, or some other repair manual for the "how to" to fix yourself or take it to a tech you can trust.
